Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has refused to comment about his alleged secret meeting with Inter Milan sporting director Marco Branca on Monday night.

Chelsea were unable to confirm whether their Ivorian striker had met Branca and Inter boss Jose Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes in a Fulham restaurant.

"I don't have anything to say," Drogba told skysports.com. "I am upset about the reaction on my comeback game (against Burnley), I made an error. I have always said I have a contract with Chelsea until 2010, no comment about the supposed meeting."

Blues boss Luiz Felipe Scolari was clearly on edge when asked if Drogba had met Branca.

"I do not sleep with him (Drogba)," retorted Scolari. "Where he was Monday night? I don't know. I am not a policeman for my players."

But when the Brazilian was asked to clarify if Drogba had been given permission to be in the company of Branca, Scolari's tone worsened.

"Ask (chief executive) Peter Kenyon, ask (owner) Roman Abramovich; I don't know, I am only the coach."
